Thousands of people on Wednesday took out a rally in Leh town demanding Ladakh be given union territory (UT) status.

Headed by Tsewang Thinless, president Ladakh Buddhist Association, the rally started from Indira Chowk, Leh and culminated at the historic Pologround, Leh. There (Pologround), the speakers claimed that Ladakh is culturally, ethnically, linguistically and above all, geographically different from any part of the country and the region remains cut off for major parts of the year. “So, Ladakh be declared a UT with separate legislature,” they said.

Among the speakers who addressed the gathering were Tsewang Thinles, president LBA; Ashraf Ali, president Anjuman Imamia, Leh; Dechen Chamga, president, president Christian community, Leh and Gey Shedup Chamba, president, All Ladakh Gonpa Association, Leh.   The stage was conducted by Rinchen Namgyal, vice-president, LBA.

The speakers said that the strategic importance of Ladakh can never be neglected for any more time and forcing it to remain a part of Jammu and Kashmir shall result into the total dissemination of the people of the Ladakh particularly of Leh district socially, culturally, ethnically and linguistically which will be a criminal negligence of the leaders at the helm of affairs in New Delhi.

In once voice, the speakers demanded that Ladakh be declared a union territory without any further delay.
